? >> harris: a lot of energy spent on all this going back and forth. in fact, leading republicans suggesting a great deal of time has been wasted on politics. >> that is precisely right. they note that the house republicans tried to address the issues this summer and voted to extend all of the bush tax cuts and voted on an alternative to the automatic spending cuts that are due to kick in in the new you year and today the top senate republican said why wasn't this addressed months ago? >> we wanted an agreement. but we had no takers. the phone never rang. and so now here we are five days from the new year and we might finally start talking. >> so clearly a lot of blame game back and forth between republican and democrats but perhaps most importantly a white house meeting tomorrow with all of the key players face to face with the president. harris? >> they are talking. now, if we could just get them to talk to each other. the president and senate already returned and now we know house lawmakers due you to come back on sunday. >> there was a quarterback between the house gop leadership and ran
be mildly amused that so much of us spend so much in the energy and acknowledgment and the meaning of the cherished day. the reaction is not benign amusement or scorn or indifference. it is angry and venomous and high volume rage. it is like they're afraid it would be true. if they thought it was a fairy tale and thought it like what they claimed it to be. they would be unmoved by our waisting time and energy and money over it, they would be glad we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless . the degree of hosility is a sign of fear. you don't fear a stuffed bear in the musime. but you would fear an eight foot tall grisly bear that you had growling inches from your face. people who think that god is dead and the birth of jesus is for coward and weaklings. they would react in our christian observances . some curiosity and no real eal reaction or fear . when i see the vicious and irerational reaction?we have holiday trees instead of christmas trees. no. i am made to feel that it must be mighty powerful to elicit that response so that a person would be scared s
is your best bet? >> there is no dow that energy stocks, to me, we are seeing the spikes in oil prices today. lori: you are basically saying try to raise some cash during this last week. that could be your fine opportunity. >> right. you have to think back at what these companies are saved. they are not overly optimistic. they were not doing back flips about the future. sometimes waiting is the best investment strategy that there is. you have to begin to see whether they will begin to grow. most companies have to face the facts. most companies are making money because of cost-cutting. i think we have to really look at ways to just be ready. the best place to be -- lori: lean and mean. cash is, well, i guess that is why you had a debate. i guess i can hold on for two weeks. >> i agree. they are lean and mean. every quarter, they are cutting more and cutting more. now, we are at the point if they are able to prove that this make sense, they will be able to show that they can grow. this could make or break a great quarter. corporations dealing with uncertainty really shows that it will ei
a big big portion of the problem. thank you. host: what energy end of the year energy issues are we looking at here and which ones are likely to get punted down the road? guest: that's a good question. i'm not sure what energy issues -- i'm not aware of any -- host: tax issues? guest: tax issues for the fiscal cliff. but going down the road you definitely have some issues. there's the need for a new highway bill, they've had trouble tasking the highway legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. and our gas taxes are the main ways we pay for new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. so i think that's a relatively short-term problem. and then over the long term, which i've talked about here before, is that given that we're going to need some rev now help solve our future fiscal burden, one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar because that can also help us reorient our energy priorities to cleaner, less damaging greenhouse gases type of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cl
the energy airforce base. during the reagan administration, a great big commission that sounfound a soln for social security, these were big public fora where discussions were held with the public and now everything seems to be happening behind closed doors. why could openness happened in years past and today we can seem to get to deal? >> in large measure because the media has so changed. in those days, you did not have 24-hour coverage. what you find with 24-hour coverage if an idea services, at 10:00 a.m., it is dead by 2:00 p.m. because everybody goes to the cameras. the cameras are there. ever-present and wine to -- wanting to hype something. before you debate it is dead. you really see that around here. >> there has been a fair bit of criticism of the president for not embracing the findings of that commission. what is your take? >> i advised the president not to embrace the specifics because i feared if he did, house republicans would automatically be in opposition. if you are part of the commission you saw that dynamic. there were 18 of us. six representing the president, six rep
add series of set backs. >> he had a few low energy days and things snowballed from there. at the wrong time because of his weakened condition because of the fight of bronchitis 88 years old it adds up to a tough situation right now. >> george w. bush has visited his father twice. so has jeb bush. he spent the christmas day in the hospital. things are not going well but doctors remain cautiously optimistic. >> he's in a bad way, but the doctors believe that there is a path for him to recover from this and if we can get him to rally a little bit it's good but we are not there yet. >> he has been placed on a liquids only diet for the time being. >> hope he recovers. >>> now to an extreme weather alert another day of frightful weather awaiting some areas all across the northeast. 6 people have died in the christmas storm system that spawned blizzards sleet and rare tornadoes. causing this plow's tires to spin out. making matters worse gusty winds are redistributing snow back on to the roads. >> in the state of ohio a lot of drivers are complaining about zero visibility. they
commissions or other groups, you mentioned the energy air force base. during the reagan administration, a great big commission that found a solution for social security, these were big public fora where discussions were held with the public and now everything seems to be happening behind closed doors. why could openness happened in years past and today we can not seem to get to deal? >> in large measure because the media has so changed. in those days, you did not have 24-hour coverage. what you find with 24-hour coverage if an idea services, at -- surfaces, at 10:00 a.m., it is dead by 2:00 p.m. because everybody goes to the cameras. the cameras are there. ever-present and wanting to hype something. before you debate it is dead. you really see that around here. >> there has been a fair bit of criticism of the president for not embracing the findings of that commission. what is your take? >> i advised the president not to embrace the specifics because i feared if he did, house republicans would automatically be in opposition. if you are part of the bowles- simpson commission you saw
energy and oil. >> i think that reflects an understanding of where the country is. the u.s. whatever you think about how long troops should remain in afghanistan. i think everybody thinks that's enough with that kind of commitment of u.s. forces overseas. >> is our mission to eliminate taliban? it never was our mission. it is nation building? is it sending children to school? is it building sewer systems? is it going after al-qaeda? so, all those factors are complicated but they have to be carefully thought through and i'm not sure we've done that very well in the last ten years, but i do think we will do it smarter. we always learn. they're tough lessons to learn. vietnam was a tough lesson for us to learn. (instrumental music) >> but even as the war on terrorism winds down, the nuclear threat is surfacing once again. >> iran is working on a longer-range missile capability, an intermediate range missile, that could reach europe. and these guys are good. eventually they will develop an icbm that could reach the united states. >> the iranians are being continuing to amass technologies, le
in the history of science and that means more wacky weather, more moisture, more energy. global warming is a misnomer. it should be called global swing. >> which means the world doesn't end tomorrow. it's just every little event is worse or inkre meantycrementally worse than before. >> you look at all the glaciers are receding. the ice caps has diminished by 50% just in the last 50 years. an area the size of united states in terms of ice disappeared this year over the polar ice caps. the seasons are changing. summer is longer winter is shorter, tropical diseases are moving north. all the indicators show that the earth is warming up and that's what's driving some of this wacky weather. >> duh that show more or could we snap back? >> get used to it. we could be experiencing more 100-year flooding storms, hurricanes because there's more energy circumstance lating. we could argue how much human activity is driving it but everybody agrees the earth is heating up there's more energy in the system. that means more swing in the weather. >> no matter who's contributing it
. back to you, carl. >> seema, thanks so much. check out some energy in metals this morning. let's go to our favorite birthday girl of the day. bertha coombs. >> thank you very much, for the birthday wishes. you know, it's national chocolate day. what else would be better on your birthday? except for a lot of inventory numbers today, delayed because of the christmas holiday. we have energy at the moment fractionally higher across the board. the dollar index weakening just a hair at the moment. despite the fact that we had industry numbers that were a bit bearish. the api putting out numbers of crude stocks. when you look out at the estimates for the eia, we're expecting to see a drawdown of crude of 2 million barrels. crude, the third weekly gain. one of the biggest gains we've seen in a long time, nearly 3% this week. it's looking fairly technically strong. gasoline will be the one that people will watch. eia estimates are for a build there of 250,000 barrels. it's closer to that than what we saw from the api at 2.5 million barrels. that's certainly going to be more bullish for gasol
for in 2013. harris: there are three you said. what are they? >> housing, energy and huge amount, trillions of dollars sitting on the sidelines by corporate america, waiting to come into the economy once this picture clears up. harris: we're getting housing numbers coming this week already. we're starting to see prices rose a little bit this fall. that is a good sign. we're seeing housing starts have come up as well. so i understand that. energy. >> energy is a game-changer, it really is. we look what is going on around the world. the europeans, far east, they're paying over $17 a btu for natural gas. we get it for $3 in this country. dow chemical just proposed building the largest chemical plant it has in the world here in this country because of the competitive advantage of natural gas. imagine if we could liquify, ship it to europe, ship it to the far east. not only would we have a huge impact on trade balance but actually help the economies out too. game-changer. harris: you mentioned cash on the sidelines. where is that coming from? >> corporate america and consumers, and we saw it thi
want to switch topics. he has also been a big step in of energy policy -- champion of energy policy. discovery of natural gas in your state has changed the economy. where do you think this new discovery of this resource is going to lead us? >> i did it is incredibly positive for the united states. we of gone from 60% foreign energy dependence down to 40%. there are a lot of projections now the we could become energy independent over the next several decades. that would be an incredible boon to this country. instead of sending $400 billion or five order billion dollars abroad every year to buy scarce energy supplies for people who do not particularly like us, we could be spending that at home. think of the difference that will make to the economic strength of united states. think about what it will mean to job opportunities, the economic strength of america. natural gas is a very clean resources compared to many of the other options. our progress . on reducing dependence has also been on grenoble's. -- progress on reducing dependence has also been on renewables. all across north dako
education and research and development, investing in clean energy and technology, investing in infrastructure and dealing with the deficits were more -- in a more balanced way. it was about what our obligations are to each other. it was about big things. those are very, very big things. i will say that, for all of the critique about whether our campaign was about big things or not, the preoccupations of people who write about that -- and i used to do that for a living -- i don't try to separate myself -- many of them are my best friends -- there is an awful lot of horse race coverage of this presidential race. there is such a preoccupation with who will win and who will lose and so little real interest in what the implications are. >> we were talking about pulling. >> public polling is so voluminous now. any to kids with an abacus can do a poll of the corner grocery store and some national news are in position will cover it as if it is news. and maybe the billion tommy pulled him out today. -- the billy and tommy poll came out today. it can be done sound yet they produce res
this year. these are things that can tell you how much energy you're using, you can control them with your smartphone app so they can connect to the internet. so devices are getting smarter and smarter. they are learning our energy usage habits and are saving us energy. in fact, we have a nest in my house and it saved us about $300 a month this summer in air conditioning bills. >> the final one, what is it, 4d television or 4k television? >> this is ultra-high definition television. why have high definition when you can have ultra-high definition. someone who works in tv, i'm sure you're really excited to see this. sony is already selling these. they are about 25 grand so that's not affordable. >> how much better def do i get? now it's 1080p. how many more pixels do i get? >> you have to see it to believe it. i saw demos before and thought okay, you don't know you want this until you see it. then you think yes, i want this. sony is doubling down on this technology by remastering some of these movies for this type of technology. they've got "spider-man" out. i think we will talk about it --
is meaningless and useless, if they thought that, merely be mildly amused some of us spend so much energy in the acknowledgment, celebration and meaningness of this day. and the action is not benign amusement, not scorn and most certainly not indifference. it's angry, venomous and high volume rage, as if the opponents of christmas are afraid that the whole story might just be true. because if they really thought it was a fairy tale and felt like the fairy tale they claimed it to be. they not only would be unmoved by some of our wasting our time, energy and money over it, they'd actually be glad that we extended so much effort on something that was utterly meaningless. but the degree of hostility with the christmas message is a sign of fear. i mean, after all, you don't fear a stuffed bear in the museum, but you sure would fear an eight foot tall grizzly bear that you met in the woods growling just inches from your face. so, people who think god is dead and that the birth of jesus is nonsense for cowards and weaklings, well, they would react to our christmas observances much in the same wa
that many get an energy power in the century. this is living in geography. your argument about russia and russia's in security would be that it's too flat. half the world's longitudes but it's indefensible, it runs north, south so they don't unite the country and had less people than bangladesh. 141 million people, bangladesh has more. so vladimir putin sent up near imperialism on the deepak geographical and security and that's how we should understand not as a madman hour to totalitarian but it's a very traditional autocrat. >> one of the interesting hinges of this book is your discussion about the fall of the berlin wall, and if i read it right, you say that it may appear optimists. it made us to convinced that himeno agencies our system of democracy, system of free markets would have the transforming power. >> talk about that and take that story through the 1980's and into the 90's. >> the fall of the berlin wall eliminated constraints. we thought because we can get to the red army out of eastern europe it suddenly with a transforming effect in the middle east and sub-saharan afric
a seminar based on the book and brought in people from the energy department, darpa and ibm. in reality, the path to understanding these things has been shown in what mendel wrote. men dover road went beyond conventional mathematics. he ditched the mathematics of his uncle who is a great mathematician of his era and it's the mathematics and the equations which was largely their in order to keep us from understanding math so we wouldn't apply it for new weapons and they went back to making math what it had been since the beginning of mathematics, pictures. he did it using a visual. he worked for business machine company. this machine company had come up with this incredible business machine called computers and they got the computers to create pictures based on very simple equations, very simple equations. began the patterns emerging that would allow someday mathematics to deal with the stock market. mathematics will only be able to deal the stock market jon stewart mallon george henry luce's question coming up with the mathematics that can predict these huge jumps. big continuous jumps

you. host: joshua gordon, what in the year energy issues are we looking at? -- >> end of the year energy issues are we looking at? guest: i am not aware of any major ones for the fiscal cliff. going down the road, and you definitely have some issues. there is the need for a new highway bill. they have had trouble passing highly legislation because no one is willing to increase the gas tax. our gas taxes are the main way we pay for the new roads and bridges and that kind of thing. i think it is a relatively short-term problem. long term, we're going to need revenue to solve our future fiscal burden. one of the most sensible places to raise revenue would be through a carbon tax or something similar. that can also help to reorient our energy priorities to cleaner types of energy. host: i want to note that you can go to the c-span fiscal cliff website to get the latest information. you should be checking back over the next 48 hours as things develop. guest: 8 the deadline this afternoon. the senate has set a self- imposed deadline for 3:00. host: is that senator reid's plan b? guest:
away from energy and industrials. >> talking of counting down. 15 minutes to go before the closing bell. the dow is down by 17 point but, you know, we're not really moving much at all. >> have you heard of euclid? that's what weather forecasters have named this monster storm hitting the east coast right now. our friends at the weather channel will show you the latest storm track coming up. >> and plus, how will euclid impact wall street? find out what the traders are daying next, first in business worldwide. >>> it is cold and it is ugly and it is snowing outside right now, and it is pretty much that way for most of the northeast thanks to this winter storm that's dumping snow on much of the east coast. the weather channel's danielle banks has more. >> hi there. maybe you were dealing with family drama and today we're dealing with weather drama so no holiday would be complete without some drama and still lot of that going on for locations with tornado watches through 5:00. the storms have definitely made significant progress since yesterday. so we're backing things up for you about 24 h
of what feels like here, bill. a lot of energy at the white house, a lot of curiosity surrounding this meeting. what you can't see from here and what i can't show you, unfortunately, is just about 50 yards from here is where you saw speaker boehner walking into the building, and we've got a whole cadre of white house still press photographers up on ladders peering over the hedge trying to get a picture of the leaders as they walk in and just to the left of that crowd is another crowd of reporters all gathered around the stakeout cameras. that's where the leaders could come out and talk to microphones if they wanted to say anything after this meeting. there's a lot of anticipation of whether they will say anything after this meeting, and it's widely seen that this would be a good sign for negotiations if they do come out and talk. a lot of previous white house meetings, they have not come out to say anything afterwards, so all those folks waiting over there might be waiting in vain here at this point, but at this point we know most of the major leaders are in the building, and we'l

was an engineer with a passion to try a lot of new stuff and i have a lot of energy. i hired people because i could not do myself what i wanted to do, and so i had employees. and i respected the work that they did because i gave them good salaries and the very best dental and health insurance, better than lockheed. and i never thought that i was there to grow a business or to make a profit. in fact, the number one thing -- and i always said that even to those who held stock in my company -- the number one thing, the biggest priority for my employees was to have fun. i enjoyed the accomplishment of breakthroughs and the fun of a first applied. and everyone who worked for me deserved to have that enjoyment. the second priority was the families of the employees have fun. that is why we provided good salaries and good health care and so on. the third priority, no cutting to make a profit. it is tough to say that to a stockholder or a board member. but every company i have ever seen go bankrupt, they started having fun -- they stop having fun before that. when people have fun, they will work like.
'd get $5.6 million less in funding, low-income energy assistance payments to people in our state who heat with oil, and on and on. this is all my way of coming back to the -- to the point i made at the beginning and -- and why i'm encouraged by the statements president obama and senator mcconnell have made this afternoon, that we're close to an agreement, close to a deal. i don't agree, i say again, that no deal is better than a bad deal. in this case of the fiscal cliff, no deal is the worst deal possible for the american people. we passed the time when we're going to -- before tonight, negotiate the comprehensive, bipartisan debt-reduction agreement that our country desperately needs. the least we can do is protect the constituents who were good enough to send us here from the worst possible result, which is that we let the country go over the cliff, we -- we prove that to everybody, including people around the world who depend on american strength and watch us, that our political system has become absolutely dysfunctional. so i hope the negotiations going on now end with an agreem

need to do is spend our efforts and energy in trying to achieve a plan that will carry us forward. i still am optimistic we can do that. i'm hopeful that we will do it. if we don't do it in the next several weeks before the new year, i hope it is done immediately there after. i think it would be better for the country and economy and people's confidence in the act of this country to make decisions and govern wisely if we were able to make an agreement before the end of the year. and that is still possible despite the u turn from the speaker yesterday. i hope that the discussions continue and prove conclusive. with that i want to thank you for this opportunity and i'll be happy to answer questions people might have. >> we will take questions. the questions will be first from members of the media and national press club members and then if no hands are raised after that we will go to others. >> senator i want to tie some things together in terms of your great, informative powerful knowledge based so speech and ask a question that brings us into focus given current continue verse sis. y

to even more family farms and small businesses. more american energy means more american jobs. unfortunately, energy projects are being held back by federal obstacles of all kinds. republicans hope to work across the aisle to solve these and other critical challenges facing america in the new year. dividing government is a good time to solve our problems. in the next few days, leaders in washington have an important responsibility to work together and do just that. unless congress and the president act immediately, every american will be forced to pay for the largest tax hike in our nation's history on january 1. at the same time, the federal government, including our armed forces and defense workers, will undergo deep, across the board budgetary cuts. these are the cuts that president obama promised during the campaign would never take effect. well we need to reduce spending, we can do it in a much smarter, more targeted way. going over the so-called fiscal cliff will lead to devastating job losses, at a time when american families and small business owners are still struggli

at the nymex. we have a nice little rally. if you're long, it's looking pretty good. nymex leading the energy complex. we had the contract here go above $91. that's a two-month high for the current contract. partly we've seen a little bit of a weakening of the dollar. that has certainly helped commodities. also optimism about the fact they're getting back to work in washington to try to avert the year-end fiscal cliff situation. meantime, one of the things that's interesting is how wti nymex has performed. year-to-date it has been the worst performer with regard to its loss versus a gain on the benchmark now for the global crude of brent. because we continue to see a glut here in the u.s. of oil that's produced, and unable to get out to the rest of the market, to the global market, because of a lack of infrastructure. in fact, that brent premium for a second year has topped $15 on average for the year. we're close to $20 here. nat gas also getting a bit of a boost today. the near term forecast certainly chilly. you can see that with all of that snow that's headed towards the east coast from t
